It’s like a war out there. With 12 more races after this weekend, some of the toughest men in any kind of sport are chasing Honda’s Marc Márquez. The Spaniard, the defending and five-time world champion, heads the 2019 standings after his second place in Italy two weeks ago. He finished second in Barcelona last year, when Jorge Lorenzo won for Honda. Danilo Petrucci (Ducati), who won at Mugello, is fourth. And everyone’s favourite, Valentino Rossi (Yahama) is threatening from fifth place.
